The Lady Hilltoppers had plenty of competitive action on the diamond last weekend as they hosted tournament and split their two games of the day.
The Houston girls started their day against North Pontotoc running 1-1 through three innings. The Lady Toppers could put runners on base but had trouble getting them all the way home.
“We are playing hard,” said coach Jeffery Mann. “Our bats are cold right now.”
In the bottom of the third, Mary Kansas Sullivan reached on a HBP but was stranded at first and the girls didn’t have much more luck in the next inning. Madeline Burdine dropped one in the hole behind second but was denied by Kaitlin Robertson’s shoe-string catch. Chelsea Robinson reached on a bunt, crashed a baseman to reach second on Quaneshia Pratt’s single but was called out at third to keep the Houston girls stalled on the scoreboard.
In the top of the fifth, the Lady Vikings got a couple of breaks as Dee Williams walked on and Tia Davis singled. Williams was tagged out at the plate by Sullivan but Katie Denton’s two-RBI single put the Lady Vikings up 3-1 and they held their lead for the win.
Rolling over the Wave
The Houston girls wrapped up their day with a big 12-5 win over the Green Wave of West Point.
The Lady Toppers jumped out to a quick lead, knocking in five runs in the first inning and six in the second and only allowing the Wave to score in the third and fourth.
Earlier in the week, the Lady Toppers fell 3-8 to Kosciusko in division play and the district schedule is ramping up. The Houston girls were scheduled to host Caledonia Tuesday and travel to Leake Central Thursday. They will leave division to play in Pontotoc Friday and go right back in at West Lauderdale April 1.
